Price My Space Party at The Nesting Place!

Price My Space Party at The Nesting Place!

I have decided to join The Nester's Price My Space party and post my still a work-in-progress Family Room. Most of the items in this room was purchased over an extended period of time while I was still living in an apartment. I hoped that when I purchased my first home, I could pull all of the items together for a finished Family Room. I think it turned out fairly well.

This large picture frame was purchased at a local Dallas furniture store for $4o. The clock is a wall vinyl decal with mechanical hands that I picked up from Kohl's for about $13 with a coupon. The tall chest of drawers was also purchased at the same local furniture store for $20. The price was marked down because the finish is peeling on the top and there is a large chip on one of the feet, but I think it adds character to the piece, so I left it as is. After purchasing the item, I found it on the Internet selling new for over $500. The lamp was purchased at Homegoods for $50 and the two finials were bought at Hobby Lobby for $8 each. Total $139

I had to get real creative on this one. The "entertainment center" is actually a desk hutch that I flipped upside down and sat the TV on top of it. I only paid $99 for it in the Clearance Odds and Ends section of a local furniture store. The candle holders and candles were purchased on clearance/sale at Hobby Lobby for about $36 total. The 4 frames were on clearance at Garden Ridge for about $3 each. I'm still searching for some cute baskets to hold the Wii accessories and magazines. The large planter was also purchased at Garden Ridge for $25. In the future it will hold either a large silk tree or a tall dried arrangement. Total $172.

The large frame is a duplicate of the one used to frame the vinyl clock $40. I plan to use this frame to make a large framed mirror using beveled mirror tiles. The cross was purchased at Hobby Lobby on sale for $10. The decorative platter was found at Kirkland's for about $20. Four of the same finials used on the tall chest of drawers were also used on the mantle $32. I made the dried floral arrangement using materials from Garden Ridge for about $50. Total $152.

These faux silk 108" lined drapes were a steal! I purchased them at the Neiman Marcus Outlet Horchow Finale on sale for about $25 each. They actually ending up cost less than the price I was going to spend on fabric and lining to make some similar ones myself. The rod was purchased at Target for $40. The accent chair was purchased at a local DFW furniture store for $199. When I first purchased it, I thought that I would change the gold finish to a warm pecan finish, but it has since grown on me. The lamp is a duplicate of the one used on the tall chest $50. It is currently sitting on the floor until I find a suitable side table. Total $389.

The leather sofa and ottoman was purchased at the same local furniture store for $500 and $99, respectively. I made the pillows using a fabric remnant I found at a local fabric store and trim purchased at Joann's for around $10 each. I also recovered the ottoman in a gold chenille fabric found at another local fabric store for $22. I still have to finish adding the tufted buttons. The 9x11 rug was purchased on EBay for $149 including shipping. Total $790.

Total $1,642. I still need to put some finishing touches on this room (console table for the back of the sofa, an end table for the accent chair, something under the clock frame, a plant in the corner by the entertainment center and maybe some sort of wall art above the TV), but I think the majority of it is done.

Thanks for all of the kind comments. The paint color is "Wilmington Tan" by Behr in the Satin finish.

I'm floored by your out of the box thinking on the entertainment center. Great Job!

Very pretty room and such great deals. I love that you didn't spend much money but have really beautiful things. And the upside down hutch idea is amazing.

The Nester said...

OK, super clever with the hutch!

And the framed clock!

Great job! Now keep writing!

Hello! I love your room. Especially the fireplace - that cross inside the frame is fabulous! Thank you for sharing.
